823: Guest Week: David Troupes (Buttercup Festival)
|Guest Week: David Troupes (Buttercup Festival)|
Title text: Guest comic by David Troupes of Buttercup Festival, who is living in that lovely tree outside your window.
This comic is a commentary on relationships. The woman Megan is perfectly happy sitting on the moon (which is impossible  ) with Cueball, the person she loves. Cueball, however, is not completely happy until he pegs a former bully with a rock that he shoots from the moon with his slingshot.
Guest Week was a series of five comics written by five other comic authors. They were released over five consecutive days (Monday-Friday); not over the usual Monday/Wednesday/Friday schedule.
The five comics are:

- 824: Guest Week: Bill Amend (FoxTrot)

- 826: Guest Week: Zach Weiner (SMBC)
- [Megan and Cueball are leaning against each other, sitting on top of a giant moon in a black star dotted sky. Trees are visible towards the bottom of the panel.]

- Cueball: Hold on—that guy used to dump my notebooks in high school. Give me a moment. Try to keep the moon steady.
- [A rock hits a Cueball-like guy on the ground on the back of the head.]
- [The guy clutches the back of his head.]
- [Back to the moon again, where Cueball is leaning his head against Megan while holding a slingshot]
- Cueball: I've never been so happy.
